This was something far out of my comfort zone, and I had no clue what the end result would be.
The idea was to try re-imagine Belle a as Western Steam Punk character! After researching on the web different Steam Punk styles I decided to go with almost a saloon girl style mixed with a Victorian look.
The doll's face was repainted with small red lips, dark eyes, birthmark, and then lashes added.
The hair was then restyled in an up do with a curl hanging down, and the hat is completely made from scratch out of vinyl material, velveteen material, ribbon rose, and cut red feathers with black thumb-less stocking gloves. The dress was one I basically took apart and re-did adding a petticoat and lace. She also has undergarments, a guarder, and real thigh-high stockings, removable choker, with a 3 different color layer lace skirt. The boots were made from material and doll shoes repainted then sewn and real black laces added. The fan is a working fold up fan, and the metal rose was made with wire, sequence, and a bronze rose button.
